    After producing much swarf, I've got a couple of rear uprights, hubs and brakes that I can work with.

    I'll likely replace the cast iron Mazda brake caliper with a lighter Magna rear caliper and I need to finish making the piece between the wheel nut and the wheel. I need to pick up some round alloy stock to make that from.

    Because I was going to have to fit 5 wheel studs where there was nothing I decided I might as well engineer a single wheel nut into the equation, much thought, deliberation and concern went into the design of the piece. It does after all hold the wheel on, but not the disc, in the end I'm very comfotable with the result. I now need to create a very deep socket to fit the CV nut and a deep socket for the wheel nut. I reckon in due course the length of the wheel nut stud will be trimmed after I've finalised what wheels and tyres I decide to go with...

    Very pleased with progress, I need to continue on now with adapting the engine to the transaxle.

    Something had been bugging me for some time, The Hillclimb car has a concerning propensity for stepping out, if you are under power and it gives up traction it always steps sideways. I had long suspected the "LSD" and didn't know enough about it to be able to determine this for sure. This weekend I spent some time researching more about ZF Cam and Pawl differentials, and yes, it is the nature of the beast. They are completely unlocked until under power, then they lock completely. At the moment because the limit of the tyres is so low it means that as the tyres let go it steps sideways with quite some determination. I can only hope that with some tyres with grip we can channel more power into forward motion rather than sideways. The diff will in time wear out and then become a completely open diff.....

    I found that the cam and pawl diffs when they wore out would start knocking edges off and then lock and unlock randomly.
    Great diff when they were new but wear quickly (in circuit anyway)
